How much weight can a Vitra Eames LAR support?
The Vitra Eames LAR meets the "GS" test standards and is tested up to 110 kg. The way in which the chair is used is also important. Swinging, for example, causes a higher strain which can reduce the chairs lifetime.
Can upholstery be added to a non-upholstered seat shell?
The Hopsack seat cushion is fixed to the seat shell with screws. For both the Eames Side Chair and Eames Armchairs seat cushions can be ordered from Vitra, attaching this does however require special tools and is a job for specially trained technicians. As an alternative smow offer cushions from Parkhaus which have been specially created to fit the Eames Plastic Chair series.
Are the chairs suitable for outdoor use?
Only the powder coated bases are suitable for outdoor use. The seat shell is made of through-dyed polypropylene, and special additives slow down colour fading due to UV radiation. Nevertheless, Vitra recommends not to expose the chairs to the sun longer than necessary. If the chair is left unused in the outdoor area, it is recommended to lean the chair diagonally against the table so that the water can drain on the seat. Felt glides are not suitable for outdoor use. The padded versions are not suitable for outdoor use.
How is the seat height measured?
The seat height is determined according to the European Standard EN 1335-1. This states that the chair is clamped in a special tester and loaded with a weight. The dimensions are then determined in the loaded state. The seat height is measured at a defined point in the seat area in the loaded condition. The stated seat height cannot be measured with a conventional measuring device, rather is a normalised comparison value so that different chairs (for example, with and without height adjustment, or with varying thickness of seat cushion, etc.) can be compared with one another.
How do I recognise an original Eames Plastic Chair?
On the underside of the seat shell, the material marking PP indicates the polypropylene used for the shell, a seal certifies the safety of the chair and a sticker indicates the place of manufacture and serial number. In addition, Vitra always supplies the original fully assembled.
